  • Applied Christianity HS

    Applied Christianity classes lead the weekly chapel services for the student body. They lead through Bible readings, skits, dramatic readings, etc. During the second half of the school year, students have the opportunity to write and create their own chapel services. This class fosters spiritual growth, creativity, and responsibility. It's also a lot of fun!

    There are currently two HS Applied Christianity classes: one class for 9th/10th graders, and one for 11th/12th graders. Students are permitted to take Applied Christianity only twice in their high school careers, and students may not take the class two years in a row.

    Participation in Applied Christianity is by application only, and membership is not guaranteed. Students must regularly attend church services as part of the class requirement. Students must also receive excellent recommendations from their teachers and be prepared to submit a statement of faith. If accepted, Applied counts as a theology credit.

    Applications are made available in early spring. Students can sign up for Applied Christianity when they fill out their schedule. If they have signed up for Applied on their schedule, an application will be delivered to them. Students will be notified of their acceptance/non-acceptance within a few weeks of the application due date.

    Current Teachers: Mr. Alex Bagnara & Mr. Alex Klenz 

  • Applied Christianity MS

    As an academic class, MS Applied Christianity (which is for only 7th and 8th graders) provides students an opportunity to lead weekly worship at Faith Lutheran. Students enrolled in Applied Christianity receive their theology credit for this class.

    This dynamic and ever changing class allows students to perform in skits, create the order of worship, lead liturgy, and share their faith based on the weekly chapel theme. Students will be challenged to think about how faith related topics relate to their lives and the lives of their peers as they take an active role in living out the school's mission statement: Everyone Prepared, EVERYONE SAVED.

    However, this class is by application only. The application process generally begins in late February after students have selected their classes. All students selected for this class must be active members of a local Christian church as well as willing to openly give a statement of their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior on their application.

    Archived chapels featuring both MS and HS Applied classes can be viewed here.

While all students will participate in an ECHO Family, participation as a leader of ECHO Families is by application only, and membership is not guaranteed. Within that application, ECHO Family leaders promise to be committed to this ministry as well as to live in a way that is pleasing to God. 
     
    Echo Family Leaders are expected to attend weekly training during advisory on Mondays in the Arena. They are also charged with leading the weekly meeting for their assigned ECHO Family.  Once Echo Families have been established in the new academic year and initial training is complete, leaders (and the rest of the student body) will attend their family meetings on Fridays.

    This club offers opportunities for students who are interested in any of the different avenues of fashion such as merchandising, marketing, drawing, designing, and more. In this club, we will work with all of the different students interested to learn and practice different activities each meeting. These activities can vary from creating a fashion mood board, comparing and
    contrasting fashion magazine covers over the years, and even learning how to sew on patches onto clothing items. Every meeting we will have a new “mini” project to do, or a discussion topic to talk about. Along with that, every meeting will start with a very brief informational “lesson” informing members about the different opportunities available to them in fashion whether it is scholarships, workshops, zoom meetings, or college tours.

    EXPECTATIONS:
    Members of this club are expected to participate in all discussions, presentations, lessons, and projects. Members are also expected to come to the majority of meetings. As representatives of Faith Lutheran culture, members are to act in a respectful and kind way both inside and outside of school.

Moreover, we will explore such as big fashion brands, how to market a line of fashion, how to draw a sketch of a clothing item, and more.

  • Film Club

    OVERVIEW
    Every seemingly meaningless detail in every frame of a film is there for a purpose. From the emotion and lines of a character to the placement of a cup of coffee on a table. In film club, we will look at these details, big and small, in movies and cinema, and learn the art of cinematography. We will explore how filmmakers use lighting, setting, colors, clothing, types of cameras and filters, and special effects to set a mood or tell a story.
    We will meet after school, and the meetings will be the length of the film we watch, otherwise they would be about an hour long. Members can request their favorite movie to be analyzed. We will be open to any suggestion a student has, and their input is encouraged.

    GOALS

    1. Learn about filmmaking techniques and equipment
    2. Learn how certain aspects of a scene can portray a mood or tell a story
    3. Watch videos about film theory 
    4. Analyze details
    5. Appreciate the art of filmmaking!

    Meeting Layout

    The club meetings will be every Thursday after school at 2:45. We will provide popcorn for everyone to munch on during the movies. Students are welcome to bring their own snacks to share with the group. For each movie we go through, we will spend two meetings, spending two weeks per each movie. The first week, we will watch the movie all the way through, and discuss our initial thoughts on themes and details that stood out to each person. The second week, we will go more in depth on the specific methods used, and analyze what the filmmakers were trying to convey through the film.
    Members do not have to attend weekly meetings, they can come simply to watch and eat snacks, but the second week is for those who want to go more into the meaning and discuss our thoughts.

    The FLHS MUN Team prepares for and attends MUN Conferences throughout the United States and internationally. At the conferences, the students act as delegates of their assigned country or historical figure and sit on simulated United Nations Committees to debate and resolve current international issues. To prepare for the conferences, students actively research, debate, problem-solve, and write proposals on world issues during practices.
     
    How will Model United Nations benefit me?
    The skills developed during MUN help the students prepare for college and careers. The students will gain unprecedented knowledge of world affairs. Public speaking, research, writing, critical thinking, problem-solving, diplomatic, and leadership skills are all things heavily recruited by premier colleges and universities. MUN can make students stand out to colleges and scholarship committees. The MUN experience also promotes cultural diversity and a deeper understanding of our interconnected, global society. The MUN Team is part of the FLHS Justice and Advocacy program and satisfies the J & A extracurricular requirement.
     
    When does the Model United Nations Team meet?
    The MUN Team meets every Thursday from 6:00-7:30 and occasionally on the three Mondays before competition from 6:00-7:30. All practices are held in the Library.
     
    Are there any requirements to be a Model United Nations team member?
    Students must be academically in good standing at FLHS, attend a minimum of 2/3’s of the practices, and attend at least two conferences per year. Additionally, students must prepare and submit a position paper (3-5 pages) before each conference they attend.

  • Prayer Warriors

    DESCRIPTION:
    Prayer Warriors offers students the opportunity to pray for the people they know and love (their peers, teachers, friends, and family) while simultaneously praying for people they’ve never met who live half way across the country or even the world. This club offers opportunities to spend quality, uninterrupted time with our Creator, to give all our cares and worries to God as he has directed us to do, and to escape from the troubles of this world for just a little while.
     
    EXPECTATIONS:
    Prayer warriors are expected to show up to two prayer meetings a week on Monday mornings and Friday mornings at 7am. Outside of meetings, it is requested that the warriors continue to pray for anyone and everyone. Most importantly, warriors are expected to always be willing to pray for someone no matter when or where they may receive a prayer request. Any prayers shared with a warrior are expected to remain between God and the warrior unless the prayer request reveals a situation in which one or more persons are in danger, in which case it will be reported to a counselor. In keeping with club protocol at Faith Lutheran, attendance will be taken at all meetings.

    GOALS/PURPOSE:
    The purpose of Prayer Warriors is simply to pray. We have a direct line to the Creator of the universe, the redeemer of our souls, the sustainer of our faith, yet we take advantage of that and forget how graciously God has given us the gift of prayer. The only goal of this club is to teach the warriors to give all their cares and worries to God while remembering to give him praise and thanksgivings. After that, the warriors will learn to let God take control and watch as his mercy and grace floods the sin and sorrow of this world, not because of anything we did, but because of his love for us.

  • Programming Club

    Programming Club

    DESCRIPTION:
    This club offers its members the chance to sharpen their programming skills through lessons and enjoyable programming projects beyond what is offered within courses at FLHS. Students will learn advanced programming techniques and concepts, along with the chance to apply these concepts to programming projects both individually and in a group setting. Through consistent attendance at the club, members will build an exemplary programming resume, an item vital to compete in today’s job settings.


    EXPECTATIONS:
    Members of the club will be expected to attend weekly meetings on Tuesdays after school. The vast majority of the meetings will be lessons, educating members on programming languages. Units will be structured, each lasting several weeks, with the purpose of educating students on how to program in different languages. Although a handful of meetings will also be dedicated to working on programming projects to put these lessons into real-world practice.
    Occasionally, there will be programming competitions between the members, designed to simulate a job setting, in which members will write code following specific guidelines. Most of the meetings will not entail any outside work, but when a new project is introduced during a meeting the members will be highly encouraged to work on the project outside of the club to not fall behind other members, but outside work is not vital to participation in the club. A key factor within several STEM fields is, however, a strong emphasis on collaboration.


    STRUCTURE:
    The club will be structured as the following:
    ● Throughout the year, the club will move through units, each designed to educate students on a particular programming language (including syntax, background, application, etc).
    ● Units in the second semester may also be based around specific packages, or programming techniques to hone in on topics such as AI, and game development.
    ● Each meeting, the club will close with a programming “challenge”. In reference to technical interviews, in which candidates are usually tasked with solving an issue through constructing a piece of code, students will be challenged to come up with a solution by the next meeting, and such solutions will be discussed at the beginning of each meeting.


    GOALS/PURPOSE:
    The club has five major goals.
    1. Bringing together students that are passionate about programming.
    2. Providing the opportunity for students to learn from one another.
    3. Sharpening the programming skills of FLHS.
    4. Brining computer science concepts beyond basic FLHS courses to students.
    5. Building a programming resume/portfolio for the future, especially within the information age, learning a new skill can be challenging. Programming is no exception, as there are hundreds if not thousands of web pages, tutorials, and online classes dedicated to teaching kids code, each with their own varied approach. Although from students who have several years of experience within a variety of programming based concepts, programming club offers students the chance to truly learn how to code in practically any language.

  • Trial By Peers - Faith Unit

    The Clark County Law Foundation's Trial By Peers (TBP) program is an innovative diversion program used as an alternative for first and some second time juvenile offenders. This program gives juveniles hands-on experience within the legal system and allows youth charged with misdemeanors to be tried, represented, and sentenced by their peers - other teens.

    Youth have the opportunity to participate in TBP in three primary areas of the program: as a defendant, a peer counselor or a juror. Defendants are prosecuted, defended by teen counselors, and tried in front of a jury of their peers. Teen juries determine the guilt or innocence and if applicable, impose a sentence. If the defendant completes the sentence accordingly, then his record will only reflect a referral to the peer court. Sentences may include jury duty, community services, letters of apology, and personal development classes.

    This information was retrieved from:  Clark County Law Foundation, Trial by Peers

    Below is the link that will take you to the Trial by Peers Summer Interest Form for 2023. This form will put you on the list to receive the application to the program.  Applications are generally distributed in March or April for the following summer program.  Once a student has completed the training program, they are able to serve until they graduate from high school.
